I called Gary today and he/they does/do not have cars back together, so they will not make it. He says maybe Wilkesboro. I also left a message on both Rodney's and Alanna's phones. We'll see!

OK, folks! We have a THIRD SLANT 6 RACE confirmed next weekend at Motormile. Friday night will be a makeup for one of the Mason-Dixon races, then regular races Sat and Sun. Friday gates open at 6 PM, runs at 7 PM.

Be there or switch to racing a bowtie V8...

Lou

I should be getting there Thur evening or Fri morning. Doing some minor tweeks on the Valiant, and trying to improve the fuel mileage on the truck. If any one wants parts, I can deliver. Send a PM.

Lou, is there ample parking at Motormile that we can try an park in the same area? If you have an idea of where that would be just let us know.Ryan & I will probably be there when the gates open Friday.

Dear All, (Rick)

There is a long row that runs along the back fence on the right after you come in the gate. There is more asphalt to park on there as compared to right close to the staging lanes. If we get in early enough, we can likely block off enough for 10-15 widths, closer to the stands and entrance to the staging lanes.

We plan to be in line before 6 PM too to get in first and stake our territory.

Jason Ernst is planning to make it with the LeMons Valiant, so I have moved him to the "yes" list above.

Lou

Everyone have fun this weekend sorry we can’t make it. Finally got motor out of dart and started tearing into it. No blown head gasket so will take head and have it tested for leaks. No visual cracks in block like ruster had but was leaking in rear freeze plug. I will go ahead and freshen motor with new bearings and rings. Got my fingers crossed to have all this ready for Wilkesboro so I can try out my new speed adder. Norm

All packed and ready to leave. Weather report looks good. I may or may not have internet access for the next 5 days, as I don't have a smart phone. I do have a (dumb)cell phone. Should be on my way in about an hour. See you folks soon.

Well, my buddy Scott has come through for me again. I won't have the race motor done (not likely) for this weekend, BUT. Scott is bringing a stock engine and trans up to drop in and at least have the car running. So, It might be Sat and Sun or Just Sunday, but we will be there.
Whoo-hoo!!

We are having my Mom's 75th B-Day party at our house in about 3 hours. (Also Ryan's daughter's birthday) Then we will be loading up and getting ready to leave around noon tomorrow. I am planning to be at the gate between 5:30 & 6:00 if I plan things right. See Ya soon!!

PS. I assume we just tell them we are racing Slant 6 at the gate ?

Sounds great, Rick. They don't care at the gate. You pay $10 entry at gate, and then go up to the tower window to pay for racing. I will be there to give directions inside the track.
